Michael Kors Oversized Watches: The New Go-To Accessory for the Young and Famous

Written by: Holly Troupe

Michael Kors Golden Oversized Runway

In a new world of hand held media devices and smart phones that come equipped with analog clocks, it was thought by industry insiders as recently as 2008 that the watch was going to go the way of the dinosaur and the walkman cassette player. Anemic designs paired with redundant function caused watch sales to drop drastically—especially in the wake of the recent economic meltdown. However, there has been an upsurge of timepiece-sporting amongst young celebrity taste-makers. Oversized or “Boyfriend” watches are suddenly seen on the wrists of the youthful glitterati. Their favorite designer? Michael Kors.

In 2004, Michael Kors launched his line of Oversized Chronograph watches with Fossil, at a time when many people were casting their watches aside in favor of cell phones. The pieces were large, festooned with flourishes and delicately braided bracelets; they were jewelry. Now, young stars are seen at awards shows, at premieres, or just out and about adorned with those chunky golden timepieces.

Dakota Fanning, star of the films The Runaways and the Twilight Saga, is frequently seen flaunting her Michael Kors Golden Oversized Runway Watch. This piece has a substantial 45mm case and a 24mm golden bracelet. The dial is gold brushed with gold accents and has a date window between the four and five and a three eye chronograph.

The Mid Size Runway Watch has been seen gracing the wrist of Hayden Panettiere, most known for her role on the TV series “Heroes.” This watch has a 39mm case with chocolate brown watch face and a rose golden accented mother of pearl dial and a date window between the four and the five. The bracelet is stainless steel with rose golden stainless steel panel.

Reality stars Kim Kardashian and Kristin Cavallari both wear Michael Kors Jet Set Horn/Gold watch. This watch is goldtone cased with three sub-dials and a date window between the four and the five. The watch face is golden accented cream, and the bracelet is horn and shiny goldtone.

Michael Kors watches are more than just timepieces; they are the go-to accessory for the young and the chic. Said Kors in an interview with the New York Times, “Considering how casual most people dress on a day-to-day basis, a glamorous watch is one of the few accessories that can be at once sporty, luxurious and utilitarian.”
